    My battery icon has been showing me:" service battery" since yesterday. I did SMC and PRAM reset but no use. I restarted my macbookpro just now and the battery icon shows:" condition normal".
    I know some people got the service battery problem but mine seems to be weird.
    Any idea about what is happening?
    Thanks

    The SMC ship was most likely reporting an inaccurate state.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. I did the battery calibration 2 times but It still didn't work and just suddenly It worked. I think that is really weird. Is it a hardware issue or a software issue?

    Both. The SMC chip (hardware) was reporting incorrect information to Mac OS X (software).
